The Society of Jesus is a Roman Catholic order of priests and brothers founded by the soldier-turned-mystic Ignatius Loyola. They are mostly known as “the Jesuits.” The vision of St. Ignatius Loyola was to “find God in all things.” Jesuits dedicate themselves to the “greater glory of God” and the good of all humanity. They do this in collaboration with others who share their values - laity, and religious, who become part of the extended Jesuit family.
The Jesuit Conference of South Asia (JCSA) is one of six Jesuit Conferences Worldwide. The conferences have taken a strong stance towards creating a consistent culture of care and protection of minors and vulnerable adults
